Georgia on my mind

One of the more difficult things for a fledgling democracy to acquire is a sense of loyal opposition, that is, a belief that a government has the right to govern until the next election, while other parties outside the government proper oppose its policies through constitutional means. Such parties take on the government in parliamentary debate and not in the streets. Unfortunately, this conception is something Georgians are having trouble with at the moment, as indicated in this report over the CBC: "Georgia plunges into political chaos."
